Default New ATM fee in Thailand?

THB 150 for each withdrawal from a bank ATM in Thailand. Is this true?

It's true, at least according to this announcement:

Get an ATM card from a bank that won't charge you. My bank ATM card
will reimburse any fee from withdrawals from any bank ATM in the world.

Do they pay your grocery bills as well?

You only need one. I know of at least two banks in my area that offer
that.

Of course they do. But then you have to pay them back, eventually

According to that document, the 150 Baht charge is being made from
April 17 2009 for all ATM's operated by member banks of the Thai
Bankers' Association.

Some foreign banks operating in Thailand are not TBA members, so
presumably this charge will not apply to withdrawals made from their
ATM's. HSBC and Citibank have branches in Bangkok, so there may be the
possibility to avoid this charge by getting your money from their
machines.

HSBC, Citibank and which other foreign banks have ATMs in Thailand?
